For a relatively small venue, Dowdy Ficklen Stadium packs a punch when it comes to food and beverage options. There are quite a few different food stalls located throughout the main concourse, appealing to the palate of even the most discerning of fans. Chick-Fil-A restaurant has a major presence here, and there is also the normal stadium food such as hot dogs pizza. No southern stadium would be complete with barbecue, and visitors will find plenty in abundance, as they will specialty food such as gyros. In essence, there is a quite a variety of selection available at this particular stadium, so come hungry and leave satisfied.
While there is nothing really spectacular about the design and make up of Dowdy Ficklen Stadium, the overall atmosphere is nonetheless great. It is a contrast of sorts; as the venue is not ugly or displeasing to the eye in anyway, but there is nothing jaw dropping about it either. It is simply a football stadium, basic in its design, and extremely functional. That is ok, of course, as to watch a quality football game is why people are flocking to Greenville on Saturdays in the fall to begin with. Most of the seats in the stadium, with the exception of center section, have metal benches. The center section just mentioned does have actual stadium seats and are purple in color. The one drawback would seem to be that much of the stadium is in the sun, with the exception of the seats just below the press tower, so keep that in mind if you are attending an early afternoon game in the early part of the season. Overall, however, this stadium is in a great location and affords spectators and affordable experience with a team that seems to get better with each passing season.
